Mathematically Modeling for a Nautilus-Shaped Building
- 建筑土木－会议论文 
Bionic shape provides inexhaustible creative inspirations for architects, however for building construction, which also brings new challenge to engineers. Because structural mechanics and construction implementation need accurate space orientation, dimension, and figuration, the exactly geometrical modeling is absolutely necessary. This paper presents the methods of mathematically modeling of bionic shapes with an example of a Conch shape Concert Hall in Xiamen in the design practice, and draw inferences to more complex shapes and structures for design reference.
